Waking Up with Three Unexplained Scratches on My Body

Updated on July 12, 2015

Team Wiseman has noticed that strange scratches in certain formations have appeared around the world and were the first to expose it!

This is something that happens all the time, but is rarely discussed. Thanks to the Internet, though, people who observe unusual occurrences, like waking up with three scratches somewhere on their bodies, are starting to talk to each other. And there are a lot of us, and we know the same thing is happening to all of us.

When I say it like that, it sounds crazy, right? Sure it does. It sounds crazy to me, even, and I'm the one writing about the phenomenon of unexplainable scratches appearing on human flesh.

"What does it mean?"

"Why is it happening?"

"Who else is it happening to?"

"Am I crazy, or is this real?"

"What can I do to stop this?"

These are the kinds of questions we are asking.

What are these mysterious scratches on my body?

What Do Unexplained Scratches Mean?

My research shows that these scratches usually come in threes, and appear on the back, arms, legs, and face. Along with scratches, people also experience mysterious bite marks and inexplicable bruising. They seem to appear at times in our lives when temptation is near or when we're facing a big decision.

These scratches have a distinct meaning: "destruction" or "destroy." Rather than going on and on, I'm going to share testimony from others who have been affected by strange scratches. You'll notice that this phenomenon doesn't restrict itself to one country, but rather has afflicted many around the world! You are not crazy, nor are you alone.

Most Recent Poll

Several months ago, I administered a poll about unexplained scratches and the response was fascinting.

Question: Have you ever experienced unexplained scratches, bruises, or bite marks?

  • 97% Yes
  • 3% No

These results are out of the 1047 people who voted, and this is just the beginning. Thousands of victims have turned to the Internet, searching for answers about the three unexplainable scratches appearing on their body, and I'm here to give you answers. Though other sites have tried to help, they all fall short of the Truth.

Personal Stories About Unexplained Scratches

These are real comments left by readers who have experiences scratches and other mysterious events:

"...I found this site via a search on paranormal scratches. I'm the victim of this phenomenon. This has been happening to me for the last 6 years. At first I thought it was just something odd or that maybe one of my cats scratched me and I didn't remember. I actually watched them form one night and had witnesses to the event. They were raised like welts and turned bloody. After about 3 days they completely disappeared. I've had them in places I can't reach which rules out self-infliction. I've had them on my face, neck, arms, legs, and back. Over the years I've almost gotten used to them. I was told that it might be a ghost in my house, but when I moved it kept happening. Also other people that have been close to me have been affected as well. I know this is bizarre and doesn't fit the norm, so I'm here in search of answers. I've been advised by someone who tried to help me that it may in fact be my own psychic doing. Let me explain. We all have a personal spiritual energy and there's a lot about the human mind we are only starting to understand. It's been suggested that I have certain powers or gifts that are making this happen. This power comes at a price, though. It's painful and has affected others I know. The bloody scratch marks eventually heal and disappear but nonetheless it's scary. I'm not saying that I'm some kind of warlock or anything like that. The reality is I don't know what's going on or how to deal with this. I could use some help. So I've chose the grassroots method and decided to find others like me. The person I'm currently talking to has been very helpful, but she is only one source of information. I would like to hear from others. Thanks."


"I wake up sometimes and I have scratches on my upper body, on the front and back of my right shoulder blade, and on my stomach on the right side. I don't inflict them on myself and I also do not have any animals. What do you think they are coming from?"


"On way too many occasions I have woken up with bad bruises on my body. I know that at work I often bump my arms and legs into things, but these bruises are on my torso. Unless someone pinched me or hit me, I can not figure out where I got them. On several occasions my husband has noticed bruising on my back and scratching on my back as if someone had just scratched me. They are not bleeding, but they are fresh. I have had dealings in the past with paranormal experiences where I have been pushed down a flight of stairs, or punched in the back. I call to the power of the Lord, Jesus Christ to rid me of these attacks. It usually works. But, the Devil just does not like to let go."


"The scratches, if not self-inflicted, are definitely demonic. There have been thousands of these afflictions in the past and 90% have demonic origin.

There is Biblical evidence of this, and it can be overcome. But don't go to a Catholic priest for prayer; they will just tie you up in religious jargon. Call a reputable evangelist."


"I am having these issues right now.

Yesterday I awoke with a large bruise on my forearm in the shape of a toothless human bite. The surrounding area is swollen, and I had 2 other people besides myself look for bug/spider bites(NONE)!

Today I have three scratches on the other forearm that became welt-like and burn. They are wider than cat scratches. Two of the scratches run straight up and down the forearm and the third sort of curves towards the other two. They are all about two to two-and-a-half inches long. I don't smoke dope (speed, meth, whatever you want to call it) or crack, no alcohol, no over-the-counter pills."


"I was awoken around 2:24am when my three-year-old son came running into my room screaming, "Get it away from me, get it away from me!" I opened my eyes as he climbed in bed between me and my wife. It was still dark in the room. I looked towards the foot of the bed. With GOD as my witness, clear as day, I saw a green face. I saw his eyes, nose, and mouth. His head was at the foot of the bed as if he was resting his chin on the bed. I screamed as loud as I could and reached for the light. By this time I was standing on my pillow against the headboard... The face disappeared when I turned the light on. I turned every light on in my home and searched every closet, under every bed, every square inch. I found nothing!

We live in a township called Huron believed to have been built on Indian burial grounds. I've been in the garage working underneath the car and have heard someone come in the door and close it and nobody was there at all. We have heard loud banging from the outside which shakes the house: not one or two bangs but six or seven in a row. Once I called the police and they searched the outer grounds. At the time there was four inches of snow on the ground and no one found a single footprint where the banging came from. I have since moved out of that house and my father continues to live there. He had three scratches on him last week. He also said he saw the green face in his room. I built a home on three acres on property right next door. Nothing has happened in my new home as we had it blessed. But my father says he hears a man talking almost every night. He has woken to the sound of water running and has had to shut it off. When he got sick and had to go to the hospital for surgery he was gone for seven days. I let his dogs out every day and fed them and spent time with them. THEY BOTH DIED for no reason the night before my dad was released from the hospital. The vet has no clue what they died from. They were both only four years old. I believe a demonic evil within the home murdered my dad's dogs.

Every thing I have said is true and not a stunt.

On the brighter side of things, my mom, who divorced my father 30 years ago lives in Arizona. She feeds these wild birds every day in her back yard by a stucco wall. The other day she noticed a face on the wall that looks to me like Jesus."


"I have had unexplained scratches, strange bruises, and possible burn marks. I have also had very fine, laser-straight parallel scratches under my right eye which disappeared within hours. I live in a clean house with no pets and shower every day. I'm not religious. All the marks clear up within a few days and do not hurt. I do dream about large demonic looking creatures (tall with gladiator-like human bodies and vile dog-like heads), but in the dreams I'm not afraid and find myself to be stronger and quicker and fend them off very easily. According to my partner I'm a heavy sleeper and a right git to wake up so I don't think the marks are self-inflicted. Some are right in the middle of my back where I couldn't reach. Maybe they're psychosomatic."


"I get these scratches when I'm awake..."


My brother Guy, my best friend Mindy, and me (Chrissy) were in my room the other day. We sat in a circle in the dark and held hands. Each of us said the words, 'On the first day of school I fell off my bike and got a scratch,' and so on seven times. We turned the lights on and checked our backs. Mindy had SEVEN red scratches lined up on her back. There was one scratch on my neck, two scratches on my right arm, and four on my left arm. My brother only had small ones. We took pictures of Mindy's. Mindy and I have scratches all over our bodies. One of Mindy's scratches left a scab. The one on my neck is very deep, deep enough to leave a rash. We don't have a very good relationship with Jesus Christ, so I don't know what to do...but I wear a cross. It helps me when I'm scared for some reason. I have a really bad feeling about this. Help. I have had weird experiences with these type of things before, such as screaming on my camera when I was making a video and nobody was at my house but me. And I've seen weird things in Mindy's room but i won't get into details because nobody believes me. I don't know what to do and I'm scared to be alone in my room."

How Can I Explain These Mysterious Scratches on My Body?

For several years, my family and I have experienced three scratches appearing mysteriously onto our bodies. During those afflicted years we were disregarding God and all He stood for. We were living for ourselves, using drugs, and living the "rock star" lifestyle.

While the scratches on their own were weird, what drove our suspicion was the fact that they appeared in patterns. Sometimes there were three cat-like scratch marks, just deep enough to see red, but not deep enough to draw blood. Sometimes there was one horizontal line with two vertical lines crossing the center. They would always burn then totally disappear a short time later, only to appear somewhere else on my body.

These were times drowned in confusion and chaos, so much so that the atmosphere seemed to get foggy or hazy. As these scratches appeared more and more, things became clearer. These mysterious scratches had a meaning, a purpose. They were meant to cause chaos, confusion and ultimately destroy us. In a nutshell: demons placed these marks on our bodies.

Unexplained Scratches Caused by Demons

I know, I know. It sounds crazy, and I agree. It is pretty amazing what really happens behind the scenes of humanity's existence. My family and I have been told that we are crazy too, but we know the truth. All we did was experience a phenomenon, and have decided to share our experience with others experiencing the same thing. Little did we know, it was happening to millions around the world!

The three parallel scratches are a symbol that means "Destroy." The target that is to be destroyed is us. God tells us that the devils go to and fro, seeking whom they may devour. The only answer to stopping is total surrender to Jesus Christ. How do we know? We called to Him, and even though we disregarded His ways, He answered. After several months of making the right decisions in life and becoming more aware and obedient to God's moral laws, we were set free! We are living proof that Jesus Christ is our helper and our Savior!

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: [1 Peter 5:8]

      Worry not about what this means, rather spend your time searching for Wisdom and Truth only found in Christ Himself. Learn and seek after Him. Seek and you will find!! So be careful for what you think you want to seek... again, Seek Christ is our advice:)

      ghosts can manipulate themselves using energy, devils won't do that, they possess direct into objects or human and animal body, specially when their spirit weakeness, because fear or having a hard time ( with family , job ) that way they don't lose energy like ghosts, but they use that body energy or objects, when the energy run out, they will leave the body or objects and find new one, 3 scratches may cause someone fear enough to possessed ( English is not my mother tongue), often ghosts can't do anything harmful, they just appear, send messages, or warning, but using energy from environment is hard to keep that form for long time unless they stand near electric sources, devils use their own energy to scare someone off, and they possess and use his/her energy, stored for the next victim, cause them fear and steal their energy again, pay a little energy to get full energy source, sound good?

      So this morning I woke up & I turned my back in the mirror & noticed that I have a D shaped on my left shoulder. I mean it's plane as day the letter D. It almost looks like a birth mark or even a bite mark. But I've never had it before. It just showed up last night in the middle of nowhere. I don't understand where it could have came from. Also, I constantly have these weird dreams but I'm awake. So there was this one time I had my baby in the bed with me nursing & we both fell asleep. Well I heard these really loud footsteps in my living room so I tried to wake up but I couldn't so Ik in my sleep I sat up & looked & there was nothing. So I laied back down.( Keep in mind I'm still asleep) well it happens agian & this time I tried to move my head because I feel something standing over me but I can't move my head because it's so stiff as if someone is holding it in place. I finally woke myself up & moved it & there was nothing there. This isn't the only time this has happened. This same exact thing happened to me a few months ago except I was pregnant probably 30 weeks & I had the same dream only execept I had some girl trying to wake me up. She was pushing on my belly trying to wake me up she had long strawberry blonde hair and she was in her 20s maybe. So weird I have these dreams sometimes where I think I'm awake but I'm not in asleep. These only happen when I hear things or see them. I always told my hubby about them but I think he thought I was crazy until one day I laied down for a nap & he was in the living room & out bedroom door shut firmly it didn't slam tho. So he came into the room thinking I shut it but he found me asleep & he was trying to wake me & all I did while I'm still sleeping was sit up in bed & point towards the door that just shut in it's own. So crazy right. I wish I had answers as to why these things happen to me as well as my unexplained Letter D & random bruises

      I have experienced four attacks where I have been attacked by demonic entries. The first time I was reading my Bible and suddenly felt as if a spider had bit me on the back of my leg. I jumped up went into bathroom to see and I had three scratches on the backside of leg. They were so deep and burned as if I had been using a razor. These scratches stayed on my leg for over a month, they became infected and daily I put antibiotic ointment. They welped up and we're present for almost a month. My son was attacked so brutally that he has scars. He was 14 yrs old when he was attacked so viciously he came down the stairs screaming and hollering when he turned around he had over 20 gaping gashes bleeding down his back. To this day every time he takes off his shirt I am reminded of the brutal attack as he has 20 scars still present to this day from the attack. There is no question in my mind that these occurrences happen. Usually it happens to people who have a high calling on their life. The devil only attacks who he thinks will threaten him. So on the positive side of this if you have been a victim of this type of attack you have gifts you don't even know you have and you have a high calling on your life from God. Why would the devil ever attack something that is no use to him. So on that note you can say there is some type of positive outlook on this very negative occurrence in that the person or victim whom or attacked are usually the ones whose light shines the brightest in the spiritual Realm. If you want to end these attacks put Jesus first and foremost in your life and begin your calling for the purpose in which you have on this Earth. Take this negative and turn it into the positive and give GOD THE GLORY, not the devil. Peace Love and Happiness to all of you whom have been victimized buy these type of attacks

      Today was the third time that I have had two-line scratches on my body. Middle of the day, nothing particular going on, burning sensation and then the two lines. This is over a month or so. In each location of the two-line scratches, they are still visible as red lines. I don't actual feel it's negative but someone in the spirit world trying to get help from me. I keep saying I can't help but I keep getting scratched. So - where are the answers to all of these comments below? Anyone? It's not a demon so please don't start off with that.

      My husband and I are Christians but we have not been as close to our Lord as we should. We have undergone attacks in the past. I was severely attacked health wise and suffered horrific pain that pain medication could not help. My son heard a voice call his name and my husband heard what he thought was me screaming in pain. When be went to check I was sound asleep. My husband was also fired at this crucial time from a company of 16yrs. We know this was a demonic attack. We asked for prayer and deliverance. We pulled ourselves tight to Jesus. After 6 months of utter physical hell I was delivered. My husband found a new job much later on. But our 401 was completely wiped. It has been several years since then and life has been good but I believe we are now under attack again. My husband has become bitter and very angry. My oldest son is engaged to a young lady who is a deceiver and hates my husband. She is purposefully driving a wedge between them. And they were very close. My son is completely fooled. This makes my husband even more angry and bitter. Our marriage is now suffering where once we were extremely close and now I feel us pulling apart everyday. I know the devil is meddling. This morning my husband awoke with 3 long scratches down the back of his leg! My gut is telling me this is bad but my logical side is trying to think of another reason. We have suffered a demonic attack before and it feels like the same oppression. Very worried.

And in the dreams the thing keeps saying, "It's coming." And when I was with her on this hill, we always go on, she heard the monster roar. I have experienced this to before.

      I have had weird bruises and scratches too, like hand marks and this is when I am I single lol. I am an athlete and always catch my fall and I hardly ever sick but I know I see marks on my body. I just recently felt a man in my bed just holding me tight, and didn't want to let go and said I hope this is a dream but I wasn't scared and his hands were kind of small, it felt somewhat kind but I woke up an he disappeared. I think this happened to me once when I was in highschool and I called my love in my the middle of the night scared and of course he thought I was crazy lol. I don't think these are guardian angels, perhaps. I don't want it there anymore. I am sick of these weird bruises or marks.

      I am religious and I believe in god and Jesus Christ but I've found strange cuts all over my body since the last 3 days. At first I found 3 on the right of my stomach area just a bit above my right leg, I saw 3 on the side of my face and 2 in different parts of my right leg. All the scratches on the first day were on the right side of my body. My parents just told me it was my dogs since they sometimes sleep on my bed. The second day I found another on my face but it wasn't as much visible but you could feel it very much. That was the only one the second day but right now as writing this I just got a mark on my left hand and arm it wasn't there a minute ago and I'm scared. The most mark looks like a purple line but it hurts as I touch it and it's like a dent and like I had a deep cut there and I got surgery or something, that's what it's like. Right under that there's a long red scratch that's getting all rash like and now is like a long cut. I'm getting really concerned and at first I thought I've been sleepwalking and hurting myself but I don't think that's something that could happen. I really want to like record my sleep and see what happens but I'm afraid if I do and there's some strange monster type thing or something I'll be to paranoid to sleep again. ive checked my back and there's nothing there and I don't know what's happening. Everyone thinks it's my dogs or I'm doing it myself but there scratches are to the point where I'm almost bleeding. I'm not sure they could be the work of demons but I will go to church more and do the most I can to be with God so they'll go away and if they don't then they might not be from demons. If anyone else has anything about this that could help me please say it.

      Hi Guys

      Same is the case with me Unexplained scratch marks two or three lines it's been 6 years I am living with this unexplained scratches 5 to 6 times a month.

      I also consulted Doctor, skin specialist and the only answer I got is this is a result of some food allergy which I need to detect and avoid.

      I have video the occurrence of scratches many a time , there is a slight abnormal burning sensation and then the scratches start.

      It happens anywhere any time of the day.

      I personally feel it's not something demonic or evil. it's our bodies excess spiritual energy which we all need to tap and channelise. The excess spiritual energy is God's gift to us.

      Recently I have been noticing bruises and scratches. I have eczema and usually scratch myself at night but this is too bizarre. One morning I woke up with a bruise on my inner left thigh that was in the shape of a hand and multiple small bruises on my body. I am clumsy but there were so many that were in places I have never bumped into. As well as this morning I woke up and saw 2 long scratches going up my left arm onto my veins and up to my bicep. Now there is one final scratch that I just identified while using the restroom. It is in the shape of an "M" on my inner right thigh. I have a feeling I know what this is from.

      This black dressed woman held me down in the middle of night when I was maybe 16 It was hard to breath and I tried to tell her to leave I looked her in the face her dead eyeless face at that moment I was free to speak and I demanded she leave such cruel things ran through my mind. I told my self if she lets me go I'll rape and beat this woman. I asked her to leave with such hate after humiliating me. After that I had saw her one other time a few months later and the way I felt such anger after she held me down and scarred my back while I lay motionless. This black dress woman keep her distance I stared her once again in her eyeless sockets and I ran after her she turned a walked away. And I never saw her again do not be bullied stand up look these demons. In the eyes with fear until it turns to foolish courage they will leave but you. Must for own respect your own life.

      I can relate you and everyone else who've commented, however for the several who likes to dismiss this highly important subject because we do not have "proof", then I'd like to say something.

      This has always been happening to me as well, and even up to this very day, I'm always waking up with several marks. However, unlike others, it's not usually three marks that resembles "claws", but in fact long lines almost like if I've been scarred by a blade (I say that because it's usually 4-6 inches long), and marks that resembles teeth prints. It doesn't seem to be ordinary teeth marks, if you get what I'm saying, as it appears to resemble snake bites. Plus that's not the only thing, I even wake up to the same pains and physical marks that I experience within my bad dreams (or nightmares). Say like, this one time, I dreamt of some "unrecognisable entity" which attacked me. (and by the way, this one felt very real as I woke up scared.) During the nightmare, my hand had gotten hit by an object which left a very severe mark, and wow, did that pained. I don't remember whatever happened next, but I do recall waking up to the same pain, same bruise, and felt very, very terrified. It was like I was out of breath and couldn't comprehend what the hell had happened. But I know for sure, that couldn't have been just a dream, and that was nothing compared to what else I've went through, which is a lot more unbelievably worse.

      Clearly, that's not normal, and in fact, yes, I do believe in "Demons", and whatever else "supernatural creatures" that hide out there, because I've had too much other unmentioned encounters that nothing else could possibly explain. So as for those who don't believe due to lack of evidence, I don't blame you. I get that none would ever believe in these sorts of things, unless they truly experience it themselves. Besides, how can we get the evidence? Obviously those who experience the same thing as me would be too freaked out and looking into the matter to protect themselves from further harm, would have absolutely no time to think; "hey, I got to find some kinda proof of this for those non-believers". No, it just doesn't work that way. People would rather get rid of problems quickly, rather than waste time to prove it while their life may be at risk!

      Yet I wouldn't wish for the same things to happen upon you just to get to acknowledge the fact that there're some unexplainable things and evil entities lurking around us absent-minded humans. Most of the world is quicker to believe in aliens than what is already surrounding us anyways. (I'm not disproving the theory of alien life, by the way.) All I'm saying is please, don't be quick to judge and spare us the nonsense. You all who are lucky enough to not go through such things should be truly grateful (Although I understand that they're some who don't share these experiences but still believe us under circumstances), and try to make some good use of your life.

      As for everyone else, please seek help immediately and always pray to God. Have no fear whatsoever, it always helps to keep positive.

      For all the skeptics out there I have had an experience that you would think is undoubtedly stupid but I know its true. unlike almost everyone on here i am not a religious person in fact i prefer to look at things logically but when had my experience i knew it was real.

      I was having these nightmares about an old man in early nineteen twenties clothes i didn't know his name i didn't see his face.But one night as i was trying to get to sleep i was hearing tapping on my wooden bed so i just shrugged it off thinking i was just hearing things and over the next week it was getting harder to ignore. Then at the end of the week the same happened but with one difference I heard a woman speaking very faintly so I turned around and i couldn't see anyone then I heard her scream in my ear 'WHO THE F***K ARE YOU'. I was so terrified I shouted on my mum who then ran in and asked me what was wrong? So I asked her instead did you her the woman scream? She replied, What are you talking about? so I told her. She told me not to worry but i couldn't sleep.

      After that a couple of months rolled by with nearly nothing paranormal happenings so i thought it was over. I was wrong.

      One night I had a drink with my friends in my room and at the end of the night I put the beer bottles into a bin bag. In the morning I got ready to take the bag out and to go out with my friends but as I was walking to my room door my cast iron warplane shot off my unit so I jumped out of the way. Then I heard a noise coming from the bag with the bottles inside of it. Before I knew what to do it flew clear across the room and hit me in the face and arms. It cut my arms open so I had to go to the hospital and get stitches. After that I was so scared to go back into the house my mum got someone to come out and bless it.

      After all that I haven't had any paranormal activity happen to me or in my house. So if you think that it is fake try spending a month in someone else's shoes who is actually going through it. And to the people who are going through it get help as soon as you can because it will only get worse.

      Thank you all for sharing your experiences and i hope my one will help anyone who needs it.

      Woke up this morning with a strange burning sensation on the right hand side of my neck. Checked it out and it looked like two parallel lines at an approximate 45 degree angle with a line going straight through it (like a tally but with only the two verticals). Anyone know what this might mean?

      I am Christian and I go to church. Indo not often sing the hymns as I am drumming behind the projector screen, but I have been singing these last couple of weeks - any ideas?

      I do believe that there is a Satan and that he does reside in hell - but I do not worship him in the slightest.

      Please help, this is really creepy.

      I do believe that the Bible verse at the end of the article is true (Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: [1 Peter 5:8]) but I am praying that I am not the devil's target at the moment.

      Thank you.

      I have been experiencing unexplained bruises and scratches for a couple of years now, cold touches and I also have dreams where I am casting out demons in the name of JESUS.

      I personally think God wants to use me.

      I think we are in end days and the veil is thining!

      I have invited in the HOLY spirit and have a relationship with JESUS.

      I believe God is calling his people and the enemy wants them to be to scared to answer the creators call.

      Come on people if your scratches are legitimate its not a devil or demon,

      Look at it logically, they have this "power" to leave scratches.

      So why dont they scratch out a message on the wall, I think that would get the point across much better.

      Like the best they can come up with is to leave scratches on you I mean come on.

      I have experienced and seen some pretty odd stuff that most would think was paranormal, but I found that once I looked into it even a little, the explanation was usually pretty simple.

      Some a bit more complex but still by no means supernatural.

      Think about it, if they can scratch you then why cant they type a message on your phone or computer?

      I have been getting these scratches for yeas but never really thought anything about it until today, when I finally decided what the heck I'll look it up. I've woken up with 3 scratched never very deep just enough to see a little red and they usually fade in a day or so. They've appeared on my arms and inner legs but mostly across my chest or stomach. This morning 11/23/16 I woke up with 3 faint scars on my inner leg. Now I have been under a ton of stress lately. I believe in the lord Jesus Christ, I believe in a heaven, but I struggle to believe I will be allowed in because of all the bad I've done. I've never commited any crims or been to jail but I'm not a good person either. Most people say I am but I obviously don't feel the say way. I struggle with self doubt, I struggle with belief sometimes, and I don't really fallow the lords ways even though I believe in him. Maybe, just maybe it's time for me to start following them or at least start reading the bible. And pray that the lord will help me through this.

      this is scary and when you show this scratches to people they think you are some demon. I notice this was written 5 years ago, I started noticing this three scratches on my arm 2 days ago. I am a churchgoer and I very much believe in God with that being said I am not a perfect person. I ma seriously confused and scared. I know I need to pray hard but am I getting this marks because I am a sinner?

      Hi my name is Serena and i have just experienced this thing. It all started when I was at my nanas house watching youtube in the sitting room. My grandpa just woke up and I instantly went to turn off the T.V because I always get in trouble for having the T.V on. So I then began to decide, should I go to sleep, or should I go turn on the light because I am terrified of the dark. Suddenly I felt like there was a female person behind/on my shoulder but I thought nothing of it and rubbed it off. The next day I went by my mothers house to go pick up some stuff for sports training and all of a sudden as I enter the car I feel a hot burning sensation on my neck, like someone was burning me, well thats what it felt like. I then discovered that it was scratches on my neck, NEW scratches that hadn’t been there before I got in the house. This was very unusual and painful. There were about 3 main lines sorta and they aren't like anything i've seen before. Is there reason why this would be happening to me? And it was DAY TIME!!! thats what was weird about it.

      Well I had them... Like when you touched them, its gonna bleed. Christians, satanist, atheist, wicca, pagan, buddhist, taoist, confucianist, all have particular parts in this world. I do believe everything co existed. So if there's an angel then there should be demons too. Like humans, they have feelings... So when you tried to lure them out.. You disturbed them, so many of them are just like us, mad when disturbed... But some of them are not, most are clever, just like politicians and board members and directors... So If they do things... It doesn't mean that they really intend to do it... Its what we believe in.. so what will they do? If you dont want to see them... they might come to you... Its inverse always... So 3 scratches= holy trinity of christians... being against of them... that's why. Its hard to understand.. If he wasn't just like us... so don't try to... you'll just regret it.

      well I had them one particular day... After my re-occurring dreams... And it seems to me that they mean one and the same... When I had my nightmares I woke up exactly 3am.. and it reminds me that It is the end of witch hours (meaning to say end of witch rituals, some rituals though... end after 3 am.), I feel like I'm being watched so I even if I tried to fall asleep I couldn't. So this is my bad habit now, I do my home works past 11:00 so that I wouldn't have them... One early morning... 3:00am I woke up from a nightmare... I noticed that I couldn't move so I looked around, and I noticed a girl with a creepy face staring at me located below my feet (well i'm gonna have a heart attack if she tried to vanished then flicker the lights, and then sit besides my head and say hello with her scary face) After then I realized. I wasn't safe even a pastor or even someone else was there. So I tried to remember all my re-occurring dreams... Each of them conveying something... My first was someone was trying to kill me, so he chased me until we ran through the mall hallways, and then after he got me cornered, I killed him... not intentionally though. Second, (the night when we lived in a apartment) A horrifying dream where I don't help someone who was possessed by an entity then all of a sudden while looking at him, I became him... struggling.. (that night I woke up, I turn around to my father while catching my breath, I see a man standing, but its dark so I cant see his face... I freaked out so I turned around and see the wall facing me... And then after a brief moment of silence, I turned around (where he was standing) and saw that he wasn't there anymore. The third one was I'm with a girl who was apparently whining... its all your fault its because you possessed my body that's why were here! she said. then we explore the whole place, ate street foods, saw a creepy dead lagoon, a pool with a ladder of meat, after that I dont know... then the fourth one... The LAST ONE. A demon was chasing me, he said that I broke one of the rules of our contract... And then I started to run and run... After reaching a water pump.. He said.. Its all over, Just faced your fate. I'm out of breath.. And I couldn't do anything but stare at him... and then my expressions said Okay.

      Hi there. My friend had this weird dream a few nights ago, but it didn't involve any strange scratches or anything. Her dream was about this ritual where everyone was chilled and this girl was carving a triangle, circle and square across her wrist in this order, and my friend was screaming and trying to get away from all theses carvings. but she couldn't. the she said that she saw all three of these shapes on an inverted Christian cross on a gravestone. We have looked everywhere to find the meaning for this dream, and I was hoping, from reading this article, that you could please help us.

      I found answer maybe. I thought of Sage but decided on Garlic. Yes, real Garlic. I took four(4) Cloves and placed them all on the mattress below the sheets. One(1) at my Feet another at the left side and right side of the bed and the last one on the head of the bed frame one under my pillow. I have now less scratch and the ones before are healing. This could be the answer so I will continue. and I memorised a part of the Bible that is Psalms the best part. I say it from memory even the Psalm 23 is good. Hope this helps. God is Love.

      It been 7 weeks and no scratch replaced the garlic when it gets hard and odourless get new ones. Take the old garlic out rap it in tin foil and place a fresh garlic on the outside. then burn the garlic in a fire or on the barbecue .

      I could feel the tension of spirits in the garlic as cared the old ones down to the kitchen for the tin foil.

      Thank .. oh one more a piece of garlic at each entrance of the house on the floor at the door, window, cat door etc.

      Don't really know much about these scratches.

      But I was doing some excercise and noticed on my side, about the height og my belly button was two scratches, like a cross. And even if I did scratch myself, my nails are not long at all (I bite them alot so it wouldnt leave a print like this) And I mayhave cats but they wouldn't stratch me there, legs and arms they would but on my stomach! So I was just wondering what anyone would think of this, it kinda creeped me out.

I am a mental person and I started having thous of killing him and putting his body on the balcony. I emidiately moved out of the apartment. He was an alcoholic that why I believe he was targeted first. At night I would hear all kings of sounds coming from his room I believe the room was where the demon lived.

      so you get the scratch some are quite graphic by design and show as a having a purpose good or bad.

      I have had these scratches on my back in odd angles. not reachable. I am going a bold statement I just need to know of you all. Do you dream of things yet to come in time? to be clear do you dream of the future in your dreams and it happens? whether it happens the next day or several months or years.

      Do you feel the pain and suffering of people in other countries or feel you are connected to other that are suffering in real time in your dream. That sounds nuts but think do you.

      Last have you ever seen a things that trace the form of humans but are translucent see through like looking through water or a mirage?

      last of those that love the bible please read Psalms you are in a battle and you must win. Psalm 35 for starts.

      God, the holy spirt and Jesus are my friend go listens to prayer

      Thank you and God bless.

      Ever since I was little I've I had the same reoccurring dream each time getting worse. I remember hiding in my dream when I was little from this black shadow that grew as I grew older. In 2010 it turned worse. I was held down in my bed it was on top of me holding my arms above me. I couldn't move talk scream anything just tears roll from my eyes. I was Baptistized and gave my life to Christ and I still have this dream. All I knew to do was pray. I prayed in my head while trying to twist and turn to get this thing off me. I couldn't see its face. It was just a black shadow of a man. Everytime night before I sleep I ask Jesus to watch over me and my family and it goes away for awhile but when he come back he's so much stronger and I have to fight harder. When I do wake up I am out of breath

      Crying in real life usually wake up screaming and marks on me. He's been averaging every 2 years to come around this time. This month has no significance that I know of. My husband passed in July 2002 and my father passed in September 1975. So that left my last in 2014 and my ex BF witnessed me having this dream he said right before I woke up I was twisting and turning back and forth my arms up above my head and tears coming down my eyes and my mouth like I was trying to scream and nothing coming out. So it's 2016 Last night was time. This time I was running and he almost got me but same heavy feeling like I was being held Down overwhelmed my body and he scratched my leg. My leg doesn't have a mark but the sensation is very painfully there. I just want these dreams to stop and go away. And btw this happened in my first 30 mins of sleep last night. The others I had been asleep for awhile maybe that's why I was able to get away this time? Idk? I would take any advice or point me to some research. Email

      Dear All

      I have long-controversial with some people may class it as unexplained circumstances.

      The unseen creatures are around us almost all the time. These species are called jinn (Male/Female) in Arabic .

      Amongst them are good and bad, they're shape-shifters and many cause so much mischievous acts against Humans.

      Children are normally protected. However, if there is a lot of evil atmosphere within the family, then children may not speared.

      If you feel any strange movements in your Bedroom or any part of your home, shout BISMILLAH ALLAHU AKBE this mean in the name of God, God is Great.

      Please be aware and remember!

      Qur’an Chapter 14 verse 22

      And Satan will say when the matter is decided: "It was Allah Who gave you a promise of Truth: I too promised, but I failed in my promise to you. I had no authority over you except to call you but ye listened to me: then reproach not me, but reproach your own souls. I cannot listen to your cries, nor can ye listen to mine. I reject your former act in associating me with Allah. For wrong-doers there must be a grievous penalty."

      Qur’an Ch. 35 verse 6

      Verily Satan is an enemy to you: so treat him as an enemy. He only invites his adherents, that they may become Companions of the Blazing Fire.

      I get scars....I don't know how but i get them. I told mom that this have been going on for aboute two years. She just thinks that i'm sleep walking. However when i was at my dad's house my nose started bleeding and he came running in cause he heard me scream. I wasn't even aweake.

      In my old room i used to see shadows shaped like humans. I heard a sound in my room once. It said "SHH" I was in the kitchen and mom was outside smoking. I went in to my room and i heard it again "SHH, SHH".

      I feel like someone is watching me all the time. I'm sceared of the dark cause i see stuff like faces, shapes and other stuff. I may sound crazy but i don't think i am. My father even had a medium visiting his house. She stoped outside and asked if she could come in. Dad let her in and she said "It's a lady here. Take my hand and i'll make her show to you that she's here" Dad did as he said and then his shirt went up and down. I get sudden pain in my legs sometimes. Extreame pain.

      Me and my sister was sleeping in the same room and i woke up cause of the pain in my leg.

      I screamed for it to stop and to get help. My sister woke up cause of this. She asked what was happening but i couldn't awnser. it was too painfull. I could onely scream. shortly after she asked what was happening, it stoped.

      Me and my father fight all the time, if we are not fighting we are silent and waiting to fight. It has gotten to the point he broke down my bedroom door because I was not outside doing the irrigation like he wanted me too. he has hit me he has threatened me, he has backed his car into mine while I was trying to get away. My mother called the police but it never changes anything. he is always mad and angry about something and he addmitted that he hated me and my son's. If he can not get to me then he attacks my son. I have tried over and over again to get out of his house but nothing has happened until now. I am able to move out and now nothing he does upsets me.. Last night he was going off on my son and i jumped up to stop him. I was upset and my husband asked to talk to me outside to calm me down. I felt something touch my arm and looked down and saw three scratches going down the entire length of my arm. I have always expected some kind of demonic connection with my father, and weird things keep happening in my house. I am a devout christian and I pray all the time but my father is always mad at me, always upset about something and no matter what i do or say he will always hate me.

      Thank you very much for this article. i have been experiencing these marks for 4 yrs now. it all happened when i reconnected with my now husband. i prayed to God regarding his will and believe that God sent my husband to me. But the marks started when we began our relationship and throughout our courtship it was full of confusion, chaos, doubt, etc. i can't even begin to explain how a horrible time that was. we would fight a lot and almost broke up so many times. i was so confused because i heard from God regarding my husband but i was still struggling in the relationship...we ended up getting married because i believed God's hand was in our relationship. but now that we are married, the marks haven't stopped. i am christian and this is very discouraging. i even thought about leaving my husband but i know what God's word says. please help! i just want these marks to stop and to know where it is coming from

      I was in bed and unable to sleep. I happen to touch my left thigh and felt something. Turned on the light and there was a 4 inch red scrach on it. I did not bump into anything. I had just been praying before bed. I knew in my spirit that it was a demonic attack. I pray the blood of Jesus all over my body. I felt in my spirit that an ex-boyfriend was using some kind of witchcraft.

This was in august 2015.

      The 2nd happened September 2015, i was in my room again , actually i was standing in the same spot when it happened the first time, i felt a pain on my finger but this time it was on the inside instead of the out and the 3 scratches were smaller.

      I'm freaking out, i see post about it meaning destroy or destruction and makes me believe im selected to go to hell after i die.

      Two days ago I had a bad dream but can't recall details. I was awake several hours when I felt burning on my left thigh. I looked and saw two long scratches, red and burning. They burnt most of day, I took pictures. I showed my husband who thinks I did it while sleeping. However my nails were cut several days ago and have overlay gel, no way I did this! I've experienced business before, my massage therapist questioned me as if she felt I was being abused, but I'm not. The bruise shoes five fingers, it was dark. I am a minister, so is my husband. I have no doubt that the welts and bruising is a spritual attack from satan. I am not fearful of the devil, I love God and the spirit of Christ lives in me. I have accepted that the enemy tries to attack when you are more vulnerable (physically), but there is a spritual warfare going's not the flesh satan wants; it's our soul. Every soldier during battle gets battle scars. I "believe" that we are more spiritual than natural. The devil wants people who are strong and courageous, he already has enough cowards. If you know the words of prayer, keep praying...and trust God. You are special, a "spritual" wonder!

      I can't find anything related to what this specific scratch means, but I woke up about a week ago with a capital "T" carved into the back of my neck. Its pretty deep so it hasn't healed yet. When I show my sisters all I get is "that's strange" because of the fact that it is a perfect T. Its really been bothering me.... Does anyone know what this might mean? I have quite the open mind so my first thought was of the paranormal, yet I can't figure out what this letter means and I have a strange urge to figure it out.

      I was asleep and woke up to what felt like something on my face, burning me. Half asleep I remember brushing my face, I also remember not feeling anything, very sleepy I fell asleep to the burning pain. I woke in the morning to find a burn mark on my face (small marking).

      I really can't figure out what it could be. No one wants to look so deep into the demonic part because it's scary, and you're triggering fear within you. In the back of my mind I know this is most certainly a possibility but I know not to feed a negative as our minds are very powerful. If you're religious, say a small prayer to the angels or god for protection of yourself and home. If you are not religious, seek advise from a doctor.

      I am a big believer in the angels and I have asked them for protection, I also won't be feeding off any fear from these experiences as I know it will only lead to panic and anxiety.

      Sometimes, somethings cannot be explained.

      I have been getting the 3 scratches now for over 30 years. always 3 about 3 inches long and about a quarter of inch apart. I have even gotten them while im awake. I just feel a stingen sesation and all of sudden there they are. I have talk to other people about this. They tell me i am doing this to myself. I have had them in areas that i could not reach and i also bite my fingernails, so i am not capable of doing to myself. I have moved several times and it still happens. I have opened the doors of the house and using olive oil going around demanding the spirit leave in the name of the holy ghoust and jesus christ himself. I didn't see the scratches for about 3 years and now they are back. I just started googleing to see if i was the only one when i came across this blog

      Interesting article, although as an atheist I would have to suggest some alternative explanations. I woke up once with scratches on my right hand. It was really weird because I couldn't remember scratching it, there were no mosquito bites or anything that would make me itch. And I had no sharp objects around where I slept. Then it occurred to me. I used to live in house where during wintertime we would have a rat inside. Not an aggressive one, just a rat who was cold. And some nights he would just run through the room and hallway. Even though, I couldn't remember what happened right away, later on, maybe the next day, the memory came to me. I remembered that I was woken up by the rat who stepped on my hand, and as soon as I woke up he ran like crazy. That's how he left the marks.

      Or in some other cases, it could be bedbugs. Sometimes, when we're in deep sleep, we don't realize what we're doing. We're capable of scratching bug or mosquito bites without waking up.

      You people are all experiencing Type I cognitive errors, recognizing patterns that aren't really there. Chill. There are no demons. There are, however, many perfectly natural explanations. Here are a few:

      -You just slept weird on your sheets.

      -Your significant other scratched you during sex, which you didn't notice as you were otherwise occupied.

      -You scratched yourself because you itched.

      -You bumped into something earlier in the day that gave you a bruise or a scratch, then forgot about it.

      -Psychosomatic symptoms are a real thing. Doesn't mean you're crazy; I've had them, too.

      -Night terrors: a well-documented phenomenon of non-REM sleep in which the affected person dreams terrible things, screams, thrashes about, oftentimes scratching themselves.

      -Don't rule out sleepwalking for the bruises, especially not before you rule out possession by evil spirits.

      -For "demonic" experiences involving paralysis, see another well documented phenomenon known as sleep paralysis, a condition caused by disrupted REM atonia. Terrifying, but natural.

      -Please, remember this is the Internet. Many of these testimonies are probably either exaggerated or completely invented.

      Occam's razor: The simplest explanation is usually the right one. Demons, in this context, are extremely complicated.

He didn't cry in the middle of the night or fuss at all so I'm not sure what happened or what this could mean if anyone can give me some sort of answer or explanation it would really help my peace of mind thank u.

      I have had several incidents that would explain the marks, such as what ever it is, isn't good?

      But in my experiences of unexplained incidents; what ever it is, its trying to work evil upon someone. It appears that it can't work itself into their thoughts, meaning if evil can't demonically control a person from a dream it has only another solution and that is leaving marks to tamper ones soul.

      In my belief by tampering into ones soul, leads to control and possession.

      "Long ago, or decades ago I lived in a doctors house. This house was totally scary, but the worst thing that ever happened was when in the middle of the night something just wouldn't let me sleep and my dog refused to sleep in my room. Well that late night, suddenly dressers shook, the ground felt as if an earth quake tremble in my room. Suddenly my bed shook (from the sensation alone, I grabbed onto the bars of my head board) my bed and my half part of my body was in a whirl wind that (led to the pit of hell) only demonic powers had the power to do. In this whirlwind, it was turning around and around, it sounded like there were demons talking to each other and they tried so hard to pull me in this pit. I prayed, fought hard to get out but it felt like I was losing; just when I told God that I can't hold on any longer and with just two finger my right / left pointing finger was all that was left until that second when I let go, it was a fight of forces that I never will forget. The bed felt as if a physical force had a hold of it and the demonic force had the other half. The gravities turbulence, while apparel to my weakness alone and feeling these forces, the gravity sudden empowered in force, it smashed onto the solid floor. In those seconds, the relief alone and a spiritual force that saved me. That fight alone weakened me, and the sweat drenched my hair and body.

      But when I felt something had lifted me from that pit, in an instant, I knew it was a force far greater than evil has ever tempted. I slept with a bible for a long time, until one night when on three executive times, in the same dream; I would wake and fall back into the same dream. These dreams "Lying on a flat rock, when I woke into this dream, this tall thing dressed in a gray+blackish cloak and it would taunt me as its face of darkness would slowly creep as if it where studying me; I would fight my way out of the dream? But I suddenly fell into that same dream, I was paralyzed to my neck down and his face inches away and what I saw was a cave, with torches all around and the cave's rocks where shinny (tunnels appeared at my right and left side as only my head moved). Then suddenly I woke, but again falling into the same dream for the third time; it felt as if I were to week to fight another battle, and there was no turning back but I fought very hard with mind and soul, suddenly awoke. Again I slept with my bible until I forgotten it.

      Until recently I had never heard of anyone who has awoke to find unexplained scratches or bruises on their body.

      I went to bed on Friday (28/3/14) with no marks or scratches on my chest but when I woke up on Saturday morning, there was 10 - 15 fine cuts across the width of my chest. My wife and I are very confused by these scratches as we have categorically ruled out all the "really helpful" explanations that come from the non-affected.

      After taking a shower on Saturday morning, the scratches (or as we see it - cuts) were stinging and this stinging or burning continued all day Saturday, all day Sunday. Even now (Wednesday 2nd April), I have a feeling across my chest like fading sunburn even though the cuts have faded (but not gone). Looking at the photos that we took, my wife observed that the shape of the cuts look like the top of a bird's head. When we showed our eldest (16) both my chest and the photos, he said without hesitation that it resembled a "raven", even though he had no idea that his mum had earlier said to me that she thought it was a bird's head.

      We decided to go online and search for answers as to why I woke up with unexplained cuts on my body. We were gobsmacked when we realized that this is an ongoing worldwide phenomenon experienced by many. It appears that 3 scratches and X's are the most common markings. The only photo that I have come across online, that is similar to some of my cuts, was when I searched "Succubus scratches" on Google images. There is a picture of someone from a bodybuilders blog in Sydney who was seeking help from his fellow bloggers. He had 2 curved cuts which measured 7 cm each. Guess what 2 of my curved cuts measured!

      I will be happy to correspond with and show photos to anyone who takes this matter seriously. No time-wasters please.

      I am searching for some explanation as to the scratches that keep appearing on my daughters back; Oddly they seem to become more prevalent after she stays at her fathers home which does have some negative forces present. She and her brother hear 'spirits' running down the stairs and moaning sounds from other rooms;among other things one of the rooms is overrun with fleas of some type. Despite all the weird happenings neither one of them seem to be so scared as to refuse to stay there. I find it odd that so many comments on here are from people experiencing similar things.

      I was in lunch today, and one of my friends told me I had a scratch on my face, I just disregarded this and kept on with my day. Thinking it was my cat because she fell asleep at my side the previous night. Earlier today I was just watching tv and doing homework while doing so, I felt a burning sensation on my arm( shoulder,shoulder blade) and I looked and saw 2 scratche a few inches long (approximately 2 1/2 in.) and then leading to 3-4 scratches on my shoulder (welter up) causing the burning sensation. Now, a few months ago my mom experienced the same phenomena on her arm and chest. And they never appeared after that. Now, I'm a supernatural kind of person. So the demonic and spiritual aspect of the incident is an accusation of mine. I e been doing some research since the incident a few months ago, and 90% of the time the accounts were said to be demonic or spiritual in a sense.

      I hate seeing this associated with religious beliefs... if you BELIEVE IT, however, that is YOUR CREATION...not that of some devil or demon...

      I know there is no convincing some of you, however... just hope I can give some comfort to those of you who are tempted to fall for this ... DON'T... it may be paranormal, alien, etc... but please drop the whole satan, demon, devil, evil thing... it will only hurt you.

      I have had vivid dreams of death, torture and despair every single night....I wake up at 2am 4am and 6am....I wake up sweating and almost falling and jerking off the bed. I wake in TERROR.. I wake up afraid and tired every single day for years... my nightmares come a vision to a crime and then 2-3 weeks later I read it in the news...scares me so much. I want to be able to sleep! I can't because my mind won't stop!

      Hi Guys, I live in Melbourne, I woke this morning to find 10 scratches on my arm, everywhere I look on the net, it seems to be people talking about supernatural, good and evil, it's hard to believe alof of this stuff being said, I am a tradesman and I tend to heal well, I can't scratch myself as my nails are shorter than tips of my finger. I'm trying to understand what is going on and why I am even drawn to figuring out why, I just want to not think about it and let it go but it's annoying me!! The scratches are running across my arm from my wrist to just past my elbow! A few of these posts have freaked me out as I can't explain it, but I do know, I can't scratch myself and its the one night my partner told me she would sleep in the lounge as she is a little restless sleeper and she wanted me to have a good night rest! I did have a really good nights rest, when I had a shower the following morning, I felt a slight Sting and found 10 scratches all the way up my forearm!! I have a weird feeling in my gut and feel like I am being watched!! What should I do and who should I contact?? I can email pics to whoever My email is

      Folks, This is generally a negativity entity that has entered the body and causing scratches wherever it resides in body and can move and multiply. NOT to worry or fear, because that will weaken your spirit and stregthen the negative entity. Please note you are way more powerful then the entity and haven't realized it. You are a being of light but you do need to know how to manage that light well or you will make thinks worse. You hold the key and not these negative entities/demons/evil spirits. I have had these scratches appear on me almost every night for past few years. My thinking becomes delusional, fearful , sad, irratating me in mood disorders. I feel depressed because of this too. I DO know that i haven't realized the power of my own spirit full yet and as soon as I do, I will help myself out of it and others too. Life is beautiful and you are all beings of immense light. Please remember you all have gifts and have psychic ability and that's why you are open to these things too. You are special!. I will tell you what will streghthen the negative entity (same as anything that will weaken you aura)

      1) Porn

      2) Drugs/Alcohol

      3) Negative company

      4) Reading negative news or thoughts/ideas/emotions of negative people

      5) Depressed thinking of past issues/ abuse and anxiety about future

      6) Not getting your complete 8 hour rest

      7) Doing too much and setting unrealistic goals

      8) Imbalanced mind leads to crazy actions that corrupt the heart and the chi flow blocks

      Remember, wherever this entity is in the body, it will block the flow of chi/white light and if it stays there long enough ie YEARS, it can deplete muscles and cause damage in terms of chronic disease.

      Your spirit is made in joy and love which is where it years to go back. All of us need to master this ability so we become beings of love and light and can share this light confidently and overcome ANY fear. The end goal is NO FEAR and ONLY LOVE. What will strenghthen you aura

      1) Stay in ablution/wudu/pure state. If you don't know wudu in Islamic tradition, just take a full body shower, it will ground your body and move your chi inside the body.

      2) Wear white clothes more

      3) Live a God centric life and away from ANY sins

      4) Meditate, pray, eat healthy and food that comes from non abusive sources

      5) Develop positive and confident thinking

      6) Strong self respect and controlled assertion

      7) Do not play into drama of other people

      8) Do Zikrullah or remembrance of God often everyday.

      9) Love others as that will open your heart and move your chi

      10) Eat healthy and start with some excercies.

      11) Connect with nature and animals

      12) Get complete rest each day

      13) Develop positive attitude and beliefs

      14) Take a day at a time

      You hold the key. You are the master of your destiny. Any thought you think, any food you eat, any thing your focus either will bring your energy up or down. Remember ego of other people can never be satisfied, people create their own suffering.

      Please note I am also a distant reiki healer and have been doing this stuff for free. If anyone needs their energy cleared and want to feel lighter in body and happier in spirit. Please don't hesitate to contact me on but please don't message me if you think its okay to drink or watch porn. You have hard lessons to learn unfortunately but if you are addicted and feel bad about it and need help, please do contact me. I can make a group of you guys and do energy clearing in group that will make you feel alot lighter in body , better concentration, lots of more energy, happier. Have a good day. Positive thinking, love , laughter, happiness and joy to you all fellow beings of light!

      Ok, so I keep a book of drawings from my dream. My dreams become so brutal that they feel so true, but one stood out the most. I dreamed of myself walking through a dark hallway. I don't know where, and don't know why. Something slammed be against the wall and grabbed my hip roughly then I woke up panicking. I cried for 2 hours and couldn't go back to sleep. When I went to take a shower that morning my hip was throbbing. When I looked down to inspect it there was a quarter sized cross ingraved in my hip. It's scabbed over and red all around it, and when I touch it, it burns. I tried to hide it from my parents, because I've had things happen in the past and when I try telling them they blame it on other things in my life. So when I was changing shirts my mom walked in and saw it. She believes that I inflict scars on my own body. MY OWN BODY. I tried telling her it wasn't me, but she still scolded me for hours. I can't talk to anyone an I don't know what's going on. Another dream I had a couple days after the same thing was in it, but it was stroking me hand tenderly and affectionately. I woke up with a long scar from my pointer finger towards my wrist.. it's on the same hand he was touching. Im so scared, I tried going to church and seeking help, but I feel so out of place there. Nobody believes me, am I going crazy?

      I get bruises quite often lol actually right now i have a like a scratch mark or like my skin peeled off when i hit myself somewhere which i don't remember ... Just blaming it on the weed!!!

      Anyway I read all of the post and let me tell you something what made you think that only Humans live with us on earth don't you think that God created some other beings such as JIIN ! Where does the Jini in the bottle come from where did they get that concept and idea from with the exact name !! PEOPLE YES they are there I mean the only religion that says this upfront tell us and informs us about it is ISLAM they can see us but we can't see them. They just like us have good and bad have different religions and based on what they do we categorize

      them into dwellers, spirits, demon , wicked ! Oh and Soothsayers Witchcraft who works with those and helps them guess right the JIIN like said earlier the only religion that EXPLAINS all this is ISLAM just check it out for yourself. THE WORLD IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS

      So i just read every single post on here... i have had almost everything you all have posted happen to me, for as long as i can remember. I have one thing that happens to me i have not read yet that i cannot explain. Well i cant really explain any of it... This is the first site i have went to and will not be the last. But One thing that has happened to me about 3 days ago, i had Deja vu about ten minutes of waking up. I was as simple as looking in the mirror and sitting on my bed wondering why i had deja vu, stayed on my bed for about 2 minutes and had a short vision of an old looking outhouse with what seems to be the letter M, painted all over it with red paint... don't really want to admit it but it looked like blood, the thing that makes me uneasy is that my sister had this same vision about 9 years ago in a house that had an evil entity and a good one. and my whole family witnessed it everyday and lived with it in that house for about 5 years knowing what was goin on. but i have been getting scratched ever since i lived in that house, till this day i get scratched all over my body i was ten when i started noticing these odd scratches, i am currently 23 years of age.. i do believe it gets worse the more you pay attention to it and think about it.. i deal with it but sometimes its kinda hard to ignore what is really happening. I, like a lot of people on here thought i was crazy until i finally had the balls to look it up.. thank you for posting your storys, but i kinda wish i hadn't read them because now i am hooked on knowing more about what is happening to me haha.

      by the way i was wondering if anyone else that has liked the feeling of a demonic presence? i don't really know how to explain it, but if anyone has a theory about this it would be nice to hear it. much appreciated! thank you for your time.

I always thought that maybe i did it and didn't realize it until i had a dream i got cut and when i woke up i was cut on my toe like the dream. Reading these articles and talking to my professor help me realize its because im not close to god like i should be. I don't pray enough or might too much, it also the reason why i have trouble sleeping. For those who have this problem. Pray MORE, AND LIVE YOUR LIFE RIGHT, BE AS CLOSE TO GOD AS YOU CAN

      I am grateful for this site because I was beginning to think I was the only one that had these type of experiences.  This one incident  that has me very upset happened last saturday Sept. 29, 2012. I recently enrolled my 2 children in catechism and as a requirement I have to stay for parent classes.  (For the past 13 years I completely stopped going to church).On this day my husband sat beside me and as I had my back towards him he said he saw an X scratch on my back and as I turned to speak to him and a second later turned my back towards him again, he said he saw 2 more X's scratched onto my back. Each one besides each other smaller than the first. He was looking at it and said they looked like cat scratches. I have cats. I thought to my self wow that's weird I didn't feel anything i can't wait to go home and check it out in the mirror, half an hour later we made it home I asked him to take a picture of it and he looked at my back and they were gone. 

      I'm seriously frightened. And i can tell my husband is too but is trying not to show it. That same night I had a nightmare of this scary loud noise and then something dark came towards me fast but I was able to wake up right away. I could not go back to sleep i was so scared.

      However I've been trying to move past this and shrug it off but I can't. My mother in law is planning to take me to a lady the problem is I want to make this thing leave me alone and go away but what if she doesn't know what she's doing and makes things worse or what if she's full of crap. It's weird  because I have had real anger issues and weird thoughts all my life but I haven't done anything seriously evil. And i consider myself a very nice person. Since i have been 6 I prayed every night before going to bed. I actually enjoy going to church so far. If I were possessed wouldn't I be behaving differently ? I have alot of pets and they love to be near me and don't act strangely at all to my presence or around the house. I have had paranormal experiences but long ago. I don't understand what's going on I wish I had real help and answers.

      A couple months ago, I took a shower and felt a kind of sting on my hip, when I got out, I noticed what looked exactly like the long welt in the second picture below. The other morning after I got out of the shower I noticed scratches 3 long scratched on the inside of my arm, opposite my elbow, then later that same day, I took a really short nap, alongside of my husband, about 20 min. long, and woke up to some sort of pinch or bite feeling and noticed 4 short scratches on my left hip. I also alot of times notice bruises on the inside of my thighs for no reason.

      Recently, my five year old has started saying things out of the blue continuously every 20 to 30 minutes for a few days at a time, then quits and starts again in a monotone voice. "We are at my pappaws house...watching movies on the computer".."We are at my house...watching TV", "Stop talking to me" rather angrily...He also claps his hands three or four times...It rather freaks me out when he does this. If I ask him, he just says "I'm talking to myself".?? My dad asked him one night why he kept saying that over and over and he said "pappaw...don't you hear the people?" The thing is, that he does it at both our house and his grandpa's house. I have had scratches on my right shoulder blade for over four months now that come and go and itch ferociously...they always return in the same place. He started doing this probably about two weeks ago. I didn't think anything really of the scratches until he started doing this...Could he honestly be hearing someone talking to him constantly? And are the scratches involved in anyway?

      Im in Los Angeles and Im personally Catholic, i highly suggest someone that does Santeria. Pick and choose because some have different abilities. They do spiritual cleansings as well as cleanse homes and buildings. Santeria is found among a lot of Central American but as well as Mexicans and other latin Americans. You will find it a lot in within Cubans. Church attending is a must also.

      Okay so this is the first time i've woken up with scratches, there are four on my left leg below my knee. I don't believe this is a sign of the devil or jesus, I believe there is another explanation.. whether it is something paranormal who knows I guess but what kinda scares me is I believe I saw a UFO the night before this. Quite strange. Also my nails are too short to scratch myself and i'm a light sleeper.

      I have been waking up with 3 cat like scratches on me for about 3 years. I would pass these off as scratching myself in my sleep. As time wore on the scratches would appear in places where it is totally impossible for me to have inflicted them myself. The last set were on my inner thigh and have left scars, I also have scars directly in the center of my back. There are ALWAYS 3, never more, never less. I am starting to become very afraid of sleeping in my room without the lights on and I am a 42 yr old woman. I believe in spirits but have never have believed in demons. 2 nights ago I had a dream that I awoke from completely terrified, though I am unsure what the dream was about. Is is possible that I have a demon in my room?

      I've also woken up with three scratches all going downwards in a row on my wrist, and they've been there for a week and are just now healing, four days ago I woke up with three simular marks to the left of my bladder. This all started when I gave into my temptation of Pornography, I've read this and now I'm no longer worried, because I know that as long as me and Jesus have a good relationship I won't be hurt.

      what if it is a hygiene/dermatological condition. The three perhaps comes from the way in which the body localizes an infection and pushes it out. I've been haunted before, but I'm readily willing to dismiss 3 scratches on the back of my knee as simply a bacterial deal.

      Sorry Gareth, I wish there is a medical reason for this. I also woke up one day with a noticeable scratch on my face; on my left cheek. It look like I was clawed overnight. I don't have any cats, but I did have a dog but it is very unlikely that my dog had done something this odd. Anyway, it was at a time of my life where I was transitioning spiritually to another church. The scratches were very superficial so I don't think it could be something that my body had produce overnight. And I tried scratching myself to see if it was me, but I couldn't produce the same scratch .

      I've never believed in ghosts and have leaned towards more to science for an explanation on everything. Until one night when I was watering my parent's lawn, and I saw a black figure as I was turning on an angle. I would never forget it. I was so shocked that I jumped back. That experience changed my views on everything.

      From then on, I've been doing a lot of research on other's people experiences with entities, and from what I can tell that there are seem to be two types of entities that people notice. A white shadowy presence and a black shadowy presence. You guys can look on videos online(authentic videos) they are out there.

      One video that l watched was 'Unsolved Mysteries' Ghost Boy episode. I'm not saying that I believed the show completely, since everything on t.v is edited to be entertaining. But it explains a bit on how someone could be scratch.

      The episode is about a young 5 year old boy who one day saw a white entity trying to touch his shoulders. The white entity happens to be his Great Grandfather. His mom told the boy not to be scared of him and asked to protect him. So the boy asked this entity and this entity said that there are lots of good and bad ghost eyeing him and they are fighting over who gets him. From then on the boy experience scratches, bruises the whole nine yards of the paranormal. I might be wrong on this, but it seems to be the scratch as a mark of possession. It does not mean that you're possessed, but more like it's claiming you. Of course I could be 100% wrong, but it could be a possibility.

      Btw, the scratches happened about 5 years ago, and my views on church and God has changed.

      Finally, I actually found a place that doesn't tell people they're crazy for this.

      So, I think it happened maybe 2 or 3 days ago. It happened right after I had a bad argument and got extremely angry [to the point of becoming violent and shouting]. Since then, 6 scars have appeared on my chest. Not 3, 6. We all know what 6 is.... anywho, they look like they've been there for at least a week, but they weren't there a week ago... If I touch them, even lightly, my skin becomes extremely red as if I've scratched myself.

      This happened before, too. A very clear scar of an X appeared on the left side of my chest one day.. Then another one appeared on my collar bone a day later.

      Before that even, however, I had 2 long scars going down my back at one point.

      The thing is.. Aha.... People seriously think I'm demon-possessed. Its possible. I mean.. look up all the signs, I have them all. No one has attempted an exorcism, though. I wouldn't even allow it.

      But still, that's fairly strange.^ Makes no sense....... or does it?

      Hey, I have these every once in a while and find it very strange. I'm not gonna lie, i bite my nails, it's a habit. To the point where i wouldn't be able to leave the sorta scratches that I'm waking up with. Today i woke up with a large scratch on my back, just at the side of my right shoulder blade. It goes vertically down and is pretty lengthy. There is slight scabbing (Not a deep scratch). There is also another scratch which goes horizontally across the vertical scratch, which isn't as rough. The thing is, i find it really uncomfortable trying to replicate the scratching motion, as if i did it myself? And I'm not a heavy sleeper so I'd know if i were doing it in my sleep. I've also received vertical scratches underneath my eyes sometimes. I don't understand this, I have no nails to scratch! And it's so uncomfortable to try and replicate these scratches. I can't explain it.

      Hi. This is the first time I have seen these marks on my neck, and they are quite fresh. I was typing at the computer when I felt a hot burning sensation. I looked in the mirror and found that my neck was covered in a big red rash, and found claw marks that were raised and painful, no bleeding tho. These scratches did not go away overnight, and you can still see and feel them. I think something followed me home the other day. I was taking a walk on a woodsy trail, when the sun was setting. The scratches appeared after the walk, and I made sure there wasn't any spider bites, etc. This is a picture of my neck...

      I am a believer of the paranormal and have dealt with demonic forces before...but I never had this experience.

      Having initials are rare but this certainly occurs. It may not be initials of anyone you may know in the flesh. One thing we learned about the demonic side of life is that demons have to boast. This may be initials of a demonic force that is simply boasting and trying to claim his property. Just please always remember that prayer is very important and extremely powerful! Stay in prayer to Jesus Christ and have no fear! With God on your side, who can stand against you?

      I few mornings ago, I woke up and my chin hurt really bad. I looked in the mirror. It was an unexplainable scratch that came out of nowhere, from my point of view it didn't look like anything. The other night, my friend and Author, V. A. Gonzalez, told me it looked like the initials MC were carved into my chin. She took a picture of it and sure enough, the initials MC were carved very neatly into the bottom of my chin. The M was written like a Devil's M. I've been trying to think of someone with the initials MC but I have no idea who.

      I have 16 mysterious scratches across my lower back and small claw (or fang) marks on my right arm and both haven't gone away. Not only that though, I also have been getting huge bruises on my right shin. If this is demonic then I might actually have to get a priest, since i have had something scratch my face when i was 6, we hear strange noises, and sometimes when im in my room my door will open even if its closed all the way or locked, but, surprisingly, if i want it to close it will, like the demon isn't trying to hurt me.

      I dreampt I was attacked by a man/entity in my dream. I awoke crying because it felt real. I told my husband in the morning and went to work My back hurt at work and I felt some scratches. I got home and asked my husband to look at my back. He said there were 5 scratches like a small hand had scratched me. At the angle they were there is not a way I could have done it to myself. I was shaken and still do not understand how this happened.

      About five days ago, I had a dream that me and my band class were in a massive gang battle for some reason. I don't know why my mind came up with this, it just did. The front of the car I was driving and the front of the gang's car eventually got smashed together, connected at this point. We were some how continuing to speed down this highway until we hit a bump. We quickly start flying in the air while doing several flips. The driver of the gang vehicle gets out a gun, and so do I. Then, I woke up.

      That morning, I found four scratches beneath my right eye. I certainly did not make the scratches, my fingers are too large. The scratch marks seem as if they have been made by a child. I do own one dog, but he was not in my room at the time, and he would not be able to climb onto my bed. The scratch marks look like they were made by the right hand of someone. I have not been roughhousing with any small children, I'm a high school student and don't see them often anyway. The cuts are not that deep, but I can still not find an explanation to where they came from. I'm worried that someone might suspect that I get abused, or that I'm cutting myself for attention. I have only gotten scratched once. My parents are not sure were the cuts came from either.

      I did, although, receive a gift from a girl. It was at a hipster skater school at the mall, I bought a pair of black sunglasses with blue tint around the edges of the lens. They had bits of metal on them. I noticed that she, a worker there, was staring at me allot. I'm not sure why she would hate me though. I was not loud or obnoxious, I was simply shopping.

      To the above comment: I am not the best of writer's and I make mistakes. I can see how someone would think that I made up my own Bible verse but what actually happened is I was simply putting a Bible verse as an answer to the problem. It was a strategy I was personally using to get one to blow the dust off of their Bible's. I now see that...sorry it was mistook...but I find it easy to offend my Christian family since judgement is made so quickly by the "perfect ones" AKA (church-goers). Some of us following Christ find it hard to encourage these days. Thank you for your comment and your concern is appreciated.

      I have had far, far too much experience dealing with dark things, so I'm not going to get into that here, I'm just going to say that I don't doubt that this happens. I'm also going to say that your blatant misquoting of Bible verses doesn't make your hub look very reliable. Show me one place that Peter said what he claimed you did. Because I get something completely different when looking up 1 Peter 5:8 and nowhere can I find a quote that matches what you posted. If you want people to believe in Christ (which I already do) don't make up Bible verses to push your own anti-demon agenda. It just makes Christians look like a bunch of liars.

      I was taking a shower when I noticed that my body was covered in a darkish red color. The "scratches appeared on both of my legs, 3 parallel lines, and symmetrical to both of my legs. One spot dragged my interest the most, four parallel scratches pointing to my upper left on my heart. I am not a man of religion but I would like to know some type of reasoning, please! what does 4 scratches mean and does the body location make any difference?

      I ended up browsing this webpage because last night I saw a dream about Succubus. I wasn't familiar with the concept and didn't know any details whatsoever about this entity. But the word Succubus was clear in the dream. Somebody was explaining to me what it does, what's its function and how to get rid of it etc. I even saw it flying with huge black wings in the dream after the description of it. After I woke up I decided to check it up from wikipedia and the description was same as the explanation in the dream. I'm not familiar with Christianity or other religions but I also noticed 4 bruises on my right leg that could kind of form a cross. 3 dots forming a triangle and another dot further down. It's indeed a real phenomena although it sounds crazy even to my ear.

      Lay down last night, had a sudden burning on my stomach, just on the skin. I thought maybe I had been bit by something, but found nothing. Burning lasted for about a minute or so and was tender to the tough. Went to sleep and awoke this morning with 6 long scratches/welts on my stomach. My morning shower aggravated them, was painful, and they are still sore to the touch and look like scratches now. I suffer from anxiety/panic disorder and have for years, and take medication to keep it controlled, and I have had scratches before, but thought maybe I had rubbed against something or scratched and didn't realize it. This is the first time it has been this pronounced. Any ideas? I believe in the supernatural, I am a Christian and know we fight spiritual warfare, but I don't have anything else going on that could explain paranormal activity, just those scratches.

      2 nights ago I had a dream within a dream. In my first dream I was flying on the ceiling. Then in my following dream, I was flying again and saw my mom. She told me to come down to the ground.

      I woke up with a massive headache and was irritable. While showering noticed 3 scratch marks on my right shoulder. I showed a friend and

      she said they look like claw marks. I am really scared. I do not want to believe in demons, but there is no explaination

      I have had paranormal dreams since I was a child, but never any marks. Very scared.

      My wife, my son and I have had the three scratch marks happen to us for the past couple years. We have since moved two times but still get them. I could discount one or two instances as coincidence, but not several times.

      I am ex-military and current law enforcement. I have experienced a few things on the job that I cannot explain in the conventional sense. I know that there is a real battle going on between good and evil which are just as real as the war we wage on terrorism. Although, this war is over our very souls.

      After I woke up this moring and took a shower, I noticed some small scratches on my left, front shoulder. Two are real prominent, the third is faint, and to the side of the scratches, it appears that there is a bite mark - small bite mark. The only different thing about this is there are no welps, no blood. No dead skin,nothing but marks, about inch and half or so long; lengthwise and a round, small bite mark to the side of the scratches. My son and I have both heard "bumps in the night". Not sure if I need to be alarmed, but it is un-nerving. My father passed away couple months ago and I have been vulnerable. Could I have un-knowingly let something in??

      Hi,my name is also Tonya. My children & I moved into a duplex house to rent a yr. ago. I didn't like the house from the moment I saw the home. I didn't wanna move in but my only other option woulda been us being homeless. Ive always felt like im being watched, the people who rent the other half of the house are weird & I found out from my neighbor that a teenage boy of the man in the other sd. of duplex hung himself! My kids & I havw been sick all the time, ive recently been diagnoised with epstein barr, shingles, & micoplasm. My twin boys who are 8 have been seeing dr's cuz they have been outta control. My 1 son woke up at 4am & came downstairs & started lighting toilet paper rolls on fire!! I could go on & on but my concern rt. now is that my 8yr old son woke up w/ 2 scratches & it also looked like a burn mark w/ welts!! I feel crazy thinking that this is a demon or what not but honostly I have no other idea of how this happened to my son this morning. I know what a bug or spider bite looks like & this isn't even close to a spider bite, it's unexplainable! Please send me your opinion or advice. Thank you, Tonya.

      My son woke up screaming at the age of two and slammed the door in my face three times. When I went up to get him a glass of water. When he was little I use to keep him near me during bed times because I could smell a rotten stinch and hear heavy breathing.. Now he wakes up from his dreams at the age of fourteen with scratches and bruises and this morning a bloody mouth from being punched in his dream. This just keeps getting more and more strange.. I know that he has been haunted all his life by demons.. Like I said I could smell and hear them when he was little.. Now he always exsplains his dreams as starting off in a hall full of doors and then opening a door. Sometimes he fights sometimes he learns.. But when he fights he come awake with some kids of crazy physical damage.. Im worried. Ive heard of what's called a dream warrior.. But I don't know.

      Yes..also some symptoms of demonic attacks is when you wake up feeling strangely angered and irritated for no reason, or a massive headache that feels like your head wants to explode..also a favorite injury is when you wake with a painful burning sensation in your spinal colon that almost has a paralyzing effect...if death was petitioned for you, then you might suffer from pain in your chest and severe cramps...

      On wounds like mentioned above, that can be actually be seen in the physical realm, use olive oil, anoint the area and pray over the wound. Jesus Christ is the only person who has the power to defeat what is threatening you.

      Team Wiseman...I've been having a lot of dreams of the end times...even to a point that I'm actually beginning to I see this...and my stomach feels long before all this will get even a 100 times worse..maybe not as long as I thought in the beginning..thank you so much for sharing... :)
